Les SUBS, Lyon

With this show, the author, dancer and acrobat Diana Niepce invites her audience to step into her life story, after the eponymous book she published in 2021. She recounts the long journey she has been on since the fall that caused irreversible damage to her spinal bone marrow, through a highly technical, detailed study of movement using the circus techniques of contact and release. In doing so, she questions bodily norms and turns the non-normative body into a revolutionary body.

Anda, Diana is programmed as part of the Plateforme 2023.
